Description Andrew Lau 2007-04-17 14:06:14 UTC
Hi guys,

At [[MediaWiki:Blockedtext]], we have access to the following three variables:

$1 = IP address of the current user
$2 = Reason why that user or IP is blocked
$3 = Blocking administrator

while [[MediaWiki:Cantcreateaccounttext]] only provides $1. Could you please
make $2 and $3 available there too so we can streamline our processing of
account creation requests at unblock-en-l.

This isn't really a bug, but it could use developer assistance.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2007-04-24 20:51:00 UTC
The sensible thing is probably to just use the same block-reporting message.
Comment 3 Andrew Garrett 2007-09-10 06:01:06 UTC
Fixed in r25714.
